Academics: Primary School (K-2)

The Primary Program at Romar Academy includes students in Kindergarten through second grade. The Primary curriculum is based on phonics – for building a subset of skills necessary for proficient reading – and the scientific inquiry and investigation to help students explore the various subject matters through interactive learning and the use of manipulatives.  By advancing its strategies while steadfast to the principles and beliefs Romar Academy was founded, the practice of developing a student’s thinking skills necessary to solve problems at school, in the community and with comrades will continue.

 

Students receive basic academic instruction in spelling, reading and vocabulary, language skills, mathematics, science, social studies, computer literacy, music, art, Spanish and physical education.  In addition, the students visit the school’s library and computer lab bi-weekly for instruction in sharpening their vocational skills, completion of research assignments and for checking out books.  Further, all classrooms are equipped with computers that are used to complement classroom instruction on an individual basis to sharpen their math, language, and reasoning skills.

 

It is the belief that all students who attend Romar Academy should graduate having discovered their unique talents and gifts that will become more developed as they climb the academic ladder.  To discover these talents and gifts as well as encourage academic excellence, Romar Academy uses its fine arts programs (International Day Festival, Grandparent’s Day, etc.), academic events (spelling contests, 600-Minute Reading Club, Science Bowl, annual science fair, Honors Banquet, etc.), monthly assembly programs, dynamic field trips, commitment to community (quarterly community projects), research projects (annual science fair, monthly book reports, etc.), cultural events (Mardi Gras, African-American cultural events).

 

Class size for first to second grade is limited to 18 - 20 students per teacher.  In kindergarten, class size is limited to 22 students with one teacher and one assistant teacher.  Students are admitted to Romar Academy based on a satisfactory academic performance from their previous school.

 

After-School Program

 

The After-School Program is a structured program designed to be an extension of the school day.  By enrolling in the After-School Program, students may participate in extracurricular activities (Math Olympiad, Science Club, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Gymnastics, Ballet, Cheerleading, Karate, Piano, Percussion/Keyboard, Soccer, and Basketball) throughout the week.  The After-School Program provides academic studies as well as physical activities, arts and crafts, music, and computer time.

 

Students are allotted time to complete homework daily; however, it is not mandatory to complete all homework before progressing to the next activity.  The After-School schedule is subject to change according to weather and other extracurricular activities.
